Big Lake

5 posts in this topic

I live right next to Big Lake and have fished it some over the previous summer. All I have been able to find are a lot of small bass and small pannies. Has anybody fished this lake much and see any decent pannies or larger fish of any sort (other then carp)?

I've fished this lake very frequently during the winter. There are some nice crappies if you look for them. The sunfish quality has really gone down over the years. There can be some pretty decent walleye fishing as well. Lots of pike with some decent ones in the mix.

Get away from the crowds and do some exploring and you'll find more quality fish.

Good Luck!

There's a lot of nice fish in there, just gotta know where to look! But, I'm not giving out that info since I have a camper on Twilight Acres Resort. Gotta keep my honey-holes to myself ya'know! grin.gif

Which side of the lake is that resort on? Is that the one with the semi public access for boats and ice fisherman that you pay a couple bucks to use?

      Thanks for the heads up as I  grouse that area and my dog is very young. I know I will be carrying my 40 cal when I go up grouse hunting.

    • Perhaps immature eagles?  I don't believe they get their white head until 4-5 years of age..

    • I second the Vermilion Club-great food and they always welcome the dog (black lab) on the deck and give her water. We have been over on major holidays (July 4th, Memorial day, etc) and can always squeeze in somewhere and if not, there's "the kid" who charges $10 for "their dock".....love the place!

    • You are right, it's a grouse.

      I am not a hunter and I live in southern Minnesota, so I don't know how to identify this bird.  It walked into our campsite at Tettegoche State Park last week.  I am thinking a grouse?

      I don't have much to report, as I have not been fishing much lately, but wanted to add a topic on our quiet forum.

      I finally got a chance to go out on Mazaska this past weekend.  I tried my usual methods with almost no luck.  Fatheads on a jig and under a slip bobber.  From 9 feet down to about 25 feet.  I had a couple of bites, but that was it.

      Water temperature was still a balmy 68 degrees and a stiff wind was coming out of the southeast.  Even though I caught nothing, it was a beautiful day to be on the water last Saturday.

      One day closer to hard water season ...
